1. Karcher Universal 15″ (Best Pressure Washer Surface Cleaner attachment)
Karcher pressure washer surface cleaner attachment is widely recognized as the most budgeted option with guaranteed efficacy. The Karcher surface cleaner disc matches the standard 0.25 or ¼ inch standard fitting. It is safe with any pressure washer ranging from 26—3200 PSI. The cleaner has two nozzles delivering a professional level of cleaning in less time and optimum water consumption.
The Karcher pressure washer surface cleaner is designed for many surfaces, including patios, decks, driveways, sidewalks, concrete, and even vertical surfaces like bricks, doors, and sidings. The nozzles are fixed at a reasonable height from the surface, so you can easily avoid forming streaks, which is a typical scenario when using a pressure washer wand. Its splash-free minimal spray technology also gives you a dry cleaning experience. In short, it is the most suitable option for DIYers as it doesn’t require any professional handling due to its lightweight, easy-to-connect features.
- 15″ disc diameter & ¼” quick connect fitting.
- Compatible with 2600 psi – 3200 psi & 2.7 GPM pressure washers.
- Most budget-friendly option

2. Simpson Cleaning Universal Scrubber, 15″ Steel Pressure Washer Surface Cleaner
Simpson Universal scrubber, best known as an all-rounder, provides the most efficient, easy-to-handle cleaning for serving professionals to DIYers. With its versatile nature of cleaning, Simpson universal scrubber has been able to handle various tasks from concrete, deck, and patios to sidewalks and wall sidings. It has a ¼” quick connect feature that easily connects to most spray wands. With a 15-inch diameter, it can quickly clean large surfaces. It is most suitable with up to 3700 PSI gas-powered pressure washers. It is meant for only cold water use.
Simpson steel pressure washer surface cleaners are equipped with two rotating jets that provide streak-less cleaning with ten times more coverage. The stainless steel body helps protect against corrosion and over-spraying, ensuring the surrounding areas are dry. The Simpson steel surface cleaner is also equipped with a nozzle-cleaning tool that regularly cleans any built-up dirt or debris to keep its longevity intact.

3. Greenworks Surface Cleaner Universal Pressure Washer Attachment
The Greenworks pressure washer surface cleaner attachment sized 11″ is a go-to accessory for most homeowners. With their lightweight and easy-to-handle features, Greenworks surface cleaners are widely used among first-time users and homeowners looking to clean their driveways, sidewalks, and patios. They are most suited with pressure washers up to 2000 PSI. If dealt with care, the green work pressure washers are durable but can be a significant turndown due to their plastic bodies.
Using an electric pressure washer with 1,800 psi and 1.1 GPM, we evaluated the Greenworks surface cleaning and found it less effective than the other models. It is considerably slower than the others on the driveway (but twice as fast as the electric pressure washer with a standard 40-degree spray nozzle).
- 11” disc diameter & ¼” quick connect fitting.
- Plastic body
- Compatible with max 2000 psi pressure washers
- Low cost
- Light weight
- Easy to push around
- Does not support any heavy-duty tasks.
4. Brigg’s and Stratton surface cleaner
Brigg’s and Stratton can be your best bet whether you are a homeowner or doing a pressure washing services business as a side hustle. Brigg’s and Stratton is the new favourite among semi-pro and professional pressure washer owners, highly compatible with pressure washers ranging from 2200-3400 PSI and many electric and gas-powered pressure washers. Like above, it also has a ¼” quick connect fitting for most pressure washer wands, with the disc bearing 14 inches in diameter and very lightweight, efficiently cleaning horizontal and vertical surfaces.
The Brigg’s and Stratton surface cleaner cleans up to 4 times faster than a 40-degree pressure washer nozzle. The tiny size improved manoeuvrability when sweeping up smaller areas like the deck and sidewalk. However, with this surface cleaner, we also noticed some low-level vibration and noise that we still need to discover with the others.
- 14″ disc diameter & ¼” quick connect fitting.
- Best for Semi-pro and DIYers
- Compatible with 2200 psi – 3400 psi pressure washers.
- Works with both electric and gas-powered pressure washers.
- Light weight deck
5. Twinkle Star 15”- Best commercial pressure washer surface cleaner
With a stainless steel body and 15″ wide disc, Twinkle Star is regarded as the best commercial pressure washer surface cleaner providing commercial-grade cleaning at its best. The Twinkle Star surface cleaner has a hover action ideal for cleaning stubborn stains on large flat surfaces. Ideal for both vertical and horizontal surfaces. Being a commercial-grade surface cleaner, Twinkle Star is compatible with any gas-powered 4000 psi pressure washer and is known to be most helpful in heavy-duty tasks.
However, the overall construction quality could be better than the best performance. The bristle ring on Twinkle Star came off after 20 minutes of cleaning since its housing is made of hard plastic rather than steel (but it wasn’t difficult to snap it back on and start cleaning). On the plus side, we valued the extra wand extenders provided with this package, which is far less expensive than the competition.
- 15″ disc diameter
- Compatible with up to 4000 psi gas-powered pressure washer
- Commercial grade
- Hard plastic material
- Durability questionable
- Works with a maximum of 3100 psi lower than similar models of equal price.
